Penguin Footprint Artwork May 5, 2012

My daughter loves to do projects.  Every day she asks me “what project can we do?”  I remembered a cute footprint project I’d seen on Pinterest.  As I usually do when she asks “what project can we do?”  I placed her on my lap and we looked at my “Kid Stuff” board on Pinterest.  I quickly found the penguin footprint project and she was instantly in love!  She is really into a Disney show called Octonauts and her favorite character is Peso (a penguin), so she was super excited.  This project was very easy and fairly quick.  It satisfied my daughter’s itch for a project, and it was fun for me, too!


1.)  Paper

2.)  Paint Brush

3.)  Black paint (I used acrylic).

4.)  White paint

5.)  Orange paint or orange construction paper.

6.)  Googly eyes



1.)  Collect supplies.


2.)  Paint the bottom of your child’s foot black.  Put it on pretty thick and paint fast so it doesn’t dry.


3.)  Stamp your child’s foot on the paper.

4.)  Paint on some wings.


5.)  Set aside the paper and wash up!


6.)  Let the black ink dry.


7.)  Paint a white belly on the footprint.


8.)  Let the white paint dry.


9.)  Press on the googly eyes.


10.)  Paint on the orange beak or cut a triangle piece of construction paper and glue.


11.)  Admire your finished project!  Ours is on our refrigerator.
